How To Go Volcano Boarding at Cerro Negro in Nicaragua

Real men volcano board. The most popular tourist activity for visitors of León, Nicaragua is “volcano  boarding” the Cerro Negro (Black Mountain). These adventurers either strap on a board or ride a modified sled down the 2,400 foot hill. There is a 41 degree slope so experienced riders have been clocked at bone-shattering speeds of up to 50 mph.

If you want to volcano board Cerro Negro contact either Big Foot NicaraguaTierra Tours or Va Pues Tours. These three tour operators have provided boarding trips for 17,000 toursts to date. They offer daily trips to Cerro Negro and half day adventures start at $30 USD. Your adventure will start with a 40 minute drive from León to base of Cerro Negro. From there you will have to climb 45-60 minute to the top. Hard work for a 45 second decent but it is truly one of the more unique experiences in the world.
